. every battleground state with the exception of north carolina. does barack obama now have a mandate? >> i don't think so because they also re-elected the house republicans. whether people intended or not, we've got divided government. >> reporter: but there was one issue that the president campaigned on, it was raising taxes on the wealthy. every, single speech he gave. >> mm-hmm. >> reporter: doesn't he have a mandate there? the top earners? seeing them play more of their fair share, as the president put it. >> you can do that through loopholes without compromising growth. but what we have learned, history and economics, is that you keep raising tax rates on job creators, it will cost us jobs. >> reporter: could you see yourself supporting a plan that raises tax rates? >> i'm not for raising taxes. this is -- >> reporter: you don't support it? >> i don't support raising tax rates. >> reporter: ryan talked to us about how his family took the loss, beginning with his 78-year-old mother. what did your mom tell you after the loss? >> she was proud of me. >> reporter: she was a celebrit

previously. that's something that is of great concern to countries like the united states that view iran's nuclear activities with very deep suspicion, don. >> absolutely. speaking of the united states, the u.s. president barack obama said this week that he believed there was a, quote, window of time to peacefully resolve this with iran. but what are the implications now, matthew? >> well, i mean, the implications are that if iran were to make use of its new increased capacity to make nuclear material for weapons, and it hasn't said that it will do this, it said quite the opposite, in fact, that would mean that we have an opportunity that president obama was talking about would get narrower. at the moment, though, i think it is important to point out that iran is still staying well clear of the sort of line in the sand, the red line, that it would cross to provoke any kind of military response. it still doesn't have the kind of nuclear material or indeed the other technologies necessary to build a nuclear weapon, at least not for some significant time in the future, don. >> matthew chanc
. >> it's pretty clear that the president was re-elected. obama care is the law of the land. >> it's happening it, and there's nothing they can do about it. right now, states are deciding how to implement a key part of the law. states can either set up exchanges for people to buy insurance or let the federal government do it for them. you think that choice would be easy for republican governors, given how much they hate the federal government. >> we don't like when the federal government comes and shoves things down our throat. >> sadly, the hardest part of my job continues to be this federal government. >> i mean all the states are actually under assault by this federal government. they are under assault by this federal government. >> so dwhae these governors decide? rick perry and his buddies are letting the feds set up their exchanges. they don't want the federal government to have any control over health care. so now they're letting the federal government have more control over health care. these republican politicians have tied themselves into knots trying to deal with the law
obama as president of the united states of america, and, you know, as a country, it was a remarkable time. it was a different election. in the midst of a financial crisis, a crisis -- i forgot my clock, otherwise i would go on for 45 minutes. [laughter] a financial crisis that really started here in the united states, but brought almost the entire global economy to its knees, and in the course of that election, and with president obama taking oches, we really -- office, we really, as a country, were at a cross roads where to go next with the system that was a broken status quo. go back as a country to the stable financial regulation, boring banking after the last major financial crisis, the great depression, boring, but effective, decade upon decade of financial stability that had orerred in remarkable era of growth for the country. unfortunately, broken down piece by piece leading up to the financial crisis. would we double down on the system? take those banks that were so large and so interconnected and so politically powerful that our leaderships decided that any one of which, if
-elect president barack obama. millions of womens votes who helped us elect a record number of women to the united states. as you look forward, understand that you are looking into the future. the future of empowerment of women in america. you saw some of these faces yesterday. among the new members elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world, the first time the body would have a power with a majority of women and minorities as its strength and we're very, very proud of that. said yesterday we could not have the majority, but we have the gavel. excuse me. we don't have the gavel. we don't have -- we have our own gavel. we have something more important. we have unity. we do not have the gavel. we do not have the -- majority. but we have unity. i think our caucus this morning demonstrated that very clearly. so, i come here with my sisters when i came to congress 25 years ago, there were about 23 members of congress who were women. out of 435. just think of that. 11, 12 democrats, 11 republicans. something like that. today, we have over 60 house democ
obama is not going to let republican senators john mccain and lindsay graham stop him from nominating whoever he thinks is the best candidate to be his next secretary of state. >>> if you nominate susan rice, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. >> she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity of the state department, then i will nominate her. >> after the president's news conference,
obama's foreign policies ahead. he will have to deal with an entirely new team. he came in and put hillary clinton as secretary of state, inherited bob gates and inherited gen. petraeus and put him afghanistan and cia and now he has to fill those positions and see who can help him deal with these challenges. >> bob, as one who has more than a passing acquaintance with scandals, where do you think the so-called libya scandal is now? >> i think there are serious unanswered questions but the suggestion they should have watergate style, independent special committees to investigate this, i don't see that yet because the question seems to be what did susan rice know and when did she know it? which falls not very high on the scale of do we really need to get to the bottom of this? i kind of disagree with chuck. i think we will find out what happened and i think we should. and you never know what this is going to show. but the real issue is libyan policy. you know, what are we going to do with this country that -- we don't know what the future is. and a light footprint might be the answer
over the weekend was thailand and late last night, president obama became the first bt to ever visit mee you mar. he met with the national league of democracy there along with secretary of state hilary clinton. he spoke with the president and said his trip is not an endorsement of the new government, which is in the middle of a transition to democracy, but he did praise the country for shaking off its military rule and press the government for more reform. obviously we're having a little bit of technical problems, but the president said the steps the president has taken for release of the prisoners and his commitment to work with the u.s. on human rights dialogue will unlease the incredible potential of that beautiful country. this is obama's first trip overseas since his reelection shows he is serious about shifting america's focus leastward. the two are continuing to fire rockets and israel has blamed hamas for does sends of arrests since the violence started. more "bill press show" after the break. we'll be right back. here in our own country. >> it's an iss
he need to be stronger? >> i think he's been weak. my son was a huge obama supporter until obama ordered that american's death with the drone and then he lost my son. my son was so offended that a president could kill a united states citizen without a trial, without anything like that. and my belief, osama bin laden has to stop prosecuting whistleblowers the way he does, and he needs to go to state's rights. let me say this. hooray for colorado and washington who took the first huge substantial step in ending this idiotic war on drugs. the people voted to legalize recreational marijuana to treat it the same as alcohol, and that's going to create a dilemma for the federal government now and this will be a good thing to see if the federal government will back off and allow states to have state's rights when it comes to things like drugs, marijuana, and a lot of the decision making. >> jesse, you ended on a slightly positive note. >> i'm a positive person. what are you stag ard about? i'm very pleased, we had the gay rights issue in minnesota where they wanted to put on our constitu
. the various agencies, who state department, justice department before going out to lawmakers. gregg? >> gregg: molly henneberg in washington. thanks. >> heather: president obama now in germany during a brief stop on his way to southeast asia. deputy national security advisor ben rhodes says that working with that region will be a critical part of the president's second term and ultimately his foreign policy legacy. president obama will first arrive in tie land before moving on to cambodia and then on monday, he will actually make history by becoming the first sitting u.s. president to visit burma. >> gregg: extremely tight election is now over in the state of arizona. democrat ron barber won a full term representing the state's second congressional district. vote increase a special election picked him to finish out the remainder of gabrielle giffords' term. but last week's election, so very tight, took until today to declare a clear winner. >> heather: the tsa confirming to fox news a troubling weakness in our nation's airport security and if exploited, it could make it easier for passengers
you stop the rocket fire. >> the united states has played its hand certainly in a way that -- that helps netanyahu. the u.s., president obama said personally from the beginning, that the cause of this conflict is hamas rocket attacks on israel. and the intolerable suffering that that causes for israeli population. so he's squarely placed the blame on hamas. at the same time, obama has been working with his contacts in the region. he's been on the phone to president morsi in egypt, to the prime minister in turkey. now we see the u.n. secretary general ban ki-moon heading to cairo. all these diplomatic efforts are also being brought into play. i think, again, it will come down to whether egypt is prepared to exert leverage and pay some capital with its own militant wing to bring hamas into some kind of cease-fire. >> and can the u.s. use as a stick in this diplomacy the billions of dollars in aid that we give to egypt? >> conceivably, that would be possible, norah. i think the u.s. has been very reluctant to play that card so far. one reason we continue to be able to tal
states has allocated about $275 million for israel's iron dome system. >>> president obama addressing the people of myanmar during his historic visit there. in a speech at the university of yangon, he praised the country for its remarkable journey toward democracy. and said further reforms are needed. he's the first sitting u.s. president to ever visit the country. he also met with activist aung san suu kyi at the home where for 15 years she was a political prisoner. >>> here in the u.s., more than 3,000 people rallying outside the white house in opposition to proposed keystone xl pipeline. that pipeline would help deliver oil from canada's tar sands down to the gulf of mexico. last year the obama administration delayed a decision on the controversial project. delayed it until after the election. >>> a family affair in texas, where a father and his two adult children are accused in a string of bank robberies. authorities say ronald scott and his 20-year-old son hayden robbed the banks while they're daughter, 18-year-old abby, drove the getaway car. the family is believed to be respons
, where a pretty fiery president obama ready to take off the gloves, if the republicans want to fight. the president clearly stating two key demands during his first news conference, ever since winning re-election. the first on taxes and the fiscal cliff. >> but what i'm not going to do is to extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% that we can't afford, and according to economists, will have the least positive impact on our economy. >> the president also making clear that he has susan rice's back. that's his ambassador, the embattled u.s. ambassador to the united nations. initially she said that that september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi began as a spontaneous protest against an anti-islam film. well, now two top-ranking republicans are vowing to block her nomination if, in fact, she is picked to be the next secretary of state. that had the president very anger. here's what he said. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> white house correspondent dan lothian is in washington, d.c., this morning. le
really afford to do that? >> it's the united states and russia who have 90% of the world's arsenal of nuclear weapons do continue to make the deep cuts that started during reagan, that obama has built up, that president obama now in his next term could make with the russians, significant credible cuts in, then the rest of the nuclear states will join a process that will make it much more difficult for any other state to acquire weapons and for any state that has weapons not to join that process. we believe that is the only way, global zero believes that's the only way, to shift from our current course towards disaster to one which promises a more peaceful world. >> queen noor, great to have you here, valerie plame, you as well. the website is globalzero.com. appreciate it. thank you. >>> coming up, you're about to meet the people who are about to become u.s. citizens live on our plaza. into their work, their name on the door, and their heart into their community. small business saturday is a day to show our support. a day to shop at stores owned by our friends and neighbors. and do
, investments for the future. >> and even thousands of miles away it appears president obama is still focused on those negotiations. while touring a royal monastery with secretary of state clinton in thailand the president was overheard mentioning the budget talks to a monk. the president later clarified his comments -- >> he's not any monk. >> no. >> he has some big i vestments in the stock market. >> he later clarified his comments at a news conference. >> yes, we were working on this budget. we're going to need a lot of prayer on that. i always believe in prayer. i believe in prayer when go to church back home and if a buddhist monk is wishing me well, i'll take whatever good vibes he can give me to try to deal with some in his back home. i'm confident that we can get our fiscal situation dealt with. >> over the weekend president obama spoke with five influential business leaders, including warren buffett and apple's tim cook to get their take on a solution for a long-term deficit reduction plan. >> steve ratner, what's it looking like? the "wall street journal" story talking about a lot o
and a path to citizenship for immigrants already in the united states. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is with us from d.c. jessica, is the obama administration saying anything about the graham and schumer plan as it starts to formulate here? >> hey, ted. they haven't commented on the plan so far this week, but graham and schumer are re-engaging on a proposal that those two senators first outlined in march of 2010, and the white house supported that r proposal then. that proposal has four specific components, not just tightening the bord, but the key component is a biometrics social security card so only those here legally can be hired. that is sort of can considered the key linchpin that could get a lot of republicans on board. also a path to legalization, a process for admitting temporary workers. it sort of is considered a framework for a comprehensive plan that the white house said they very much would like to get done for the president in the second term. >> what about the timing? why now? why is this being brought up after the election? there is exit polling that s
president obama defended u.n. ambassador susan rice who was criticized for her remarks immediately following this attack. she is reportedly in contention to succeed hillary clinton as our secretary of state, take a listen. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmurch her reputation is outrageous. jenna: senator john cornyn of texas what's elected to be the senate's minority whip, a bit of a promotion if you will. thanks to have you back on the program. >> thank you, jenna, good to be with you. jenna: your reaction on what the president had to say yesterday in. >> i thought it was an overreaction to say the least. congress has a constitutional responsibility under our system of checks and balances to consider any nominations to an executive branch position, like secretary of state. the president knows that. i us

that are aimed at the big multinationals' knowledge, making them partner with chinese state owned enterprise. and they are supposed to be a sosh a absorb and master that technology and compete overseas. >> do you think the obama administration will be emboldened to actually do something on the trade front only because they haven't -- during the election, that was not part of their argument, whereas becky was saying, romney was pushing the china issue on other things, as well. >> romney had harder rhetoric, but obama shifted in the middle of his term. he started out very soft on china, trying to be friendly, and china gave him nothing. so about halfway through his term, they started doing a lot stronger trade actions, filing some wto cases. and i think you'll see more and more of that. the u.s. chamber, everybody in washington is kind of geared up. >> what about all the corruption reports in china. >> it's very serious. because it used to be don't ask don't tell, you can gather assets, but don't be it too public about it. >> will it have an impact on the leadership today? >> yes. these guys a
